Psy Gangnam Style Most Watched Video On YouTube

Posted by on Nov 25, 2012 in Music | 1 comment

On Thursday I tweeted that Gangnam Style was just 8 million views behind Justin Bieber’s Baby which had reached just over 800 million views. Sometime last night, Gangnam Style claimed the crown and is now the most watched video on YouTube with an incredible 815 million views right now.

Holy crap. 815 million.

I first heard about Gangnam Style when Mike Sharman posted about it and it literally had a hand full of views. The video was uploaded on July 15th and I thought it was awesome then and spread the news but I never expected it to become anywhere near this world wide phenomenon that it is today. Everywhere you go you see people doing the dance and a lot of people even know the words to the song even though they are in Korean!

This is the type of thing that shows that YouTube and social media kick flipping ass!

Justin Bieber Cape Town 2013?

Posted by on Nov 23, 2012 in Cape Town | 6 comments

Woah! Hold your horses. So 5FM was going crazy this morning with news that Justin Bieber is coming to Cape Town/South Africa in 2013.

I would like to pop all you over-excited teenage girls bubbles with the news that his tour IS NOT confirmed yet. Some twat over at Big Concerts made some comment that it COULD be possible for him to come and perform two shows in 2013. Nothing is confirmed but yet everyone is running around like crazy children at the thought of this!

Calm the frikkedel down! No I have no clue if I spelled that correctly but I am in a fight of rage and far too busy plotting of menacing ways to ruin the Cape Town concert if he does perform here.

“And I was like baby, bab”… Stab, stab, stab!

Why don’t you rather listen to some local is lekker music like Dirk Van Der Westhuizen

Metallica Coming To Cape Town 2013

Posted by on Nov 19, 2012 in Cape Town | 1 comment

Today there have been some pretty strong rumours running around that Metallica are heading back to Cape Town in early 2013. It looks like it is going to be April 24 for Cape Town and so far it is only confirmed in this post. They were previously here in 2006 for Coke Fest and I was seriously bummed I didn’t get to see them, but this time I won’t make the same mistake.
